A run was put out an hour ago by user p4ntz on youtube, their final time being 1:52:14. Category being all debts. They had a well planned route, but I think I know a way to optimize it, however I don’t know if it would be practical. If you log in to the terminal in the plaza, you have a prompt with bonus miles. This prompt takes 3-4 seconds per time logging in, and racks up time when using the ABD machine to pay off loans. If before payments you were to go on a day directly after the previous, and save and quit, you go to the day after as you break your streak. This will give you the day one miles instead of a streak, displaying less characters and numbers. Over the course of the run, this could save a great deal of time. Anyone else have any other ideas for time saves over the course of his run? Link is here:

Can somebody tell me the total cost for all the debts combined, I have a glitchless idea but I want to see if it is realistic and I cant seem to find the info anywhere, and I dont feel like watching this whole thing to find out lol. Thanks!

My plan was to hope for a really lucky stalk market a few times in a row after getting 100-200k through tarantula island & Money rock after buying 1 pocket upgrade.

Of course it may be faster, but it is also very very hard luck lol

Update: Highest I have seen turnips go to was above 500 on acturnips subreddit, so I think it is possible with 2 turnip spike weeks after a 1 pocket upgrade and 29 tarantulas from the island could get you the 5.5 mil p4ntz estimated in his comment section when I checked. Of course I am not sure if turnip prices are a thing before the nook's cranny upgrade, or if this would end up being faster.

The tarantula strat is a bit too time consuming, and RNG based. If anything we should find a strat that has a 75-80 percent chance of working, and a safe route that has a 100 percent success rate. The turnips I don't think would be a reliable strat either.

The overall bells needed to pay off all debts is 5,746,000 unless you add the initial down payment of 49,800 bells which can be payed off in miles, then the overall bells needed would be 5,795,800

What do you suggest, because I have no idea of any other way to do it without the dupes. They obviously arent reliable, but I am focusing on speed and not really reliability, which I why I mentioned turnips. I am not sure exactly how I would wanna go about it.

I am also not sure how long tarantula stuff takes, and there probably is a better route for that.

i'd say attempt to get an island with roses on it, they typically spawn Man-Faced Stinkbugs, which are worth 1k each, they also have a chance to spawn Emperor Butterflies which go for 4k, they mainly spawn Man-Faced Stinkbugs though. You could also create your own Tarantula Island, but that would require an Axe to chop down the trees. I wouldn't be too reliant on RNG to bless you with a Tarantula Island.

You could also get insanely lucky with a Sturgeon Island, but the chances of that are also very slim.

Man-Faced Stinkbugs as well as Emperor Butterflies spawn from 7p-8a

I don't think native flower bugs are a good strategy because you need to get vaulting pole and the ladder just to get to where your island's native flower is iirc (though correct me if I am wrong). So you would either need to use nook mile islands for bugs or buy seeds from the store, plant them, and time travel.

I didnt think too far ahead in the turnips strategy because it required Nooks Cranny, but at the same time I still dont know exactly what would be fast enough.

If getting enough bugs and such takes long enough, then unfortunately we could be forced to use turnips because the time save if you happen to overcome the odds may be worth it.
